NEW YORK — British celebrity hair stylist Lee Stafford has brought his line of hair care products to the United States. The collection, which is housed in signature bright pink packaging, now is available at Duane Reade locations throughout New York City and at Ulta locations nationwide.
From shampoos and styling products to hair growth treatments, Stafford and developers have spent years crafting the line referred to as The Pink Range. With names such as Messed Up and Ruff As You Like It, each product is an example of Stafford’s signature edgy style. Driven by innovation, Stafford’s products, including their newly launched argan oil products and the Hair Growth range, are at the front line of development.

The National Hairdressers Federation named Stafford as the U.K.’s Most Influential Hairdresser of 2010. With a roster of numerous celebrities including The Rolling Stones, Avril Lavigne, Dido and many more, Stafford is well known across the U.K. as a stylist, product creator, editorial spokesperson and hair care educator.
Priced from $7.99 to $14.99, the line offers something for every hair type, from bleach blonde to dark, beachy waves to poker straight hair. Launched in 2001, the hair care collection is available in 28 countries across the globe.
